For our crates this month, we collaborated with crochet designer and all around inspiration, Maya Luna Corazon as our influencer partner! Maya creates her designs from the heart and with beautiful intentions to teach eager crafters how to be empowered by their creations. Inspired by the nature around her and the beauty of femininity, Maya brings beautiful designs to life with crochet in size inclusive designs. Her pieces often feature chic laciness and unique shapes that come together to create masterpieces. Maya’s love of crochet has grown to inspire others to not only create but to share their love of crochet in return by teaching others how to run a successful crochet business. We are thrilled to be working with Maya this month and can’t wait to share her design for our Membership Crate with you!
The theme for September is Paradisio. It has us dreaming of cotton candy blooms on trees, crystal blue waters and vividly colored birds. This month’s crates are hyper-colorful and bring intensity to your stash to jump start your creativity!
